How to Shoot Underwater Portraits in a Swimming Pool with your DSLR or Mirrorless and Speedlight

Essential tips for shooting Portraits underwater:



1. Use high-quality housing. Great affordable option: Ewa-Marine U-BXP
2. Use a flash. If you can't trigger an off-camera flash, use a Speedlight on-camera.
3. Use a wide-angle lens underwater. I used 28 mm for all photos.
4. Attach weights to the housing to make it weightless underwater.
5. Place silica pads into the housing to take care of condensation water
6. Wear a dive mask to be able to see something. Optionally: A weight belt helps to pull you down.



The most important tip:

Safety first! Care about security, especially when you ask your models to go into the water wearing huge, floating dresses.
